Netflix has released the first images of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
The Riverdale companion stars Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) and, like its predecessor, is a dark reimagining of the original, promising horror, the occult and witchcraft. Miranda Otto plays Aunt Zelda.
As the Hollywood Reporter notes, “Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist (Ed: a very big call), the adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.”
It is due for release in late October.
